• Fiddler on the Roof

    June 17, 18 and 24, 25 - 8:00pm June 19 and 26 - 2:30pm      GSM's first show of the season is the story of Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community,Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill traditional values in the face of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, cutting across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaves audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.                                                                                                               

  • Nice Work if You Can Get It

    July 22, 23 and 29, 30 - 8:00pm July 24 and 31 - 2:30pm            GSM's second show of the season is a 1920s-era feel-good musical, complete with extravagant dance numbers, glittering costumes and an unlikely love story between a wealthy playboy and a rough and tumble lady bootlegger. This lighthearted crowd pleaser is set against the backdrop of classic Gershwin hits like “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “Fascinating Rhythm.”
